LinkedIn Learning coming to UBC

On June 18, UBC’s Lynda.com subscription for faculty and staff is being upgraded to the newly-named online learning platform, LinkedIn Learning.

LinkedIn Learning provides the same great Lynda.com content delivered through an intuitive, new learning experience that’s powered by insights from the LinkedIn network. This online educational platform helps all levels of learners discover and develop workplace business, technology-related, and creative skills through expert-led course videos.

On June 18, faculty and staff will be able to access LinkedIn Learning using their CWL through the UBC portal.

  • As of June 17, you will no longer be able to access Lynda.com.
  • If you have previously accessed Lynda.com, your learning history and data will carry over automatically to LinkedIn Learning as long as you log in to LinkedIn Learning once this year.
  • If you have a personal profile with LinkedIn.com, you can choose to connect this with your UBC LinkedIn Learning profile – or not. The choice is up to you, and you can change your mind down the road.

To learn more about the upgrade, including how to activate your account and the benefits of connecting your profiles, please visit Before the Upgrade.
